Steven Carl Vires, 66, passed away suddenly Sunday, May 15th in his home in South St. Louis County. Steve was born in Columbia, Missouri to Barbara Jean Vires (née Bertrand) and Carl Eugene Vires, and the family moved to St. Louis while Steve was at a young age. A 1974 graduate of Lindbergh High School and a 1977 graduate of the University of Missouri, Steve was a standout football player at Lindbergh and a walk-on for Mizzou Football. Steve graduated from Mizzou with his Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism. After college, Steve eventually moved back to the St. Louis area to start his career and family, but his heart never really left Columbia. Steve was a diehard supporter of Mizzou athletics and loved making the pilgrimage to Columbia at least once a year to take in a Tiger football home game. In his later years, Steve started traveling the country in his RV, and took yearly trips to watch the Tigers in road games at every NCAA Southeastern Conference school since they joined the SEC in 2012. Steve is survived by his son, Alex Steven Vires, and daughter-in-law, Grace Malench Vires, of Tower Grove Heights, who are expecting their first son next month. SERVICES.  Memorial Service at KUTIS AFFTON CHAPEL, 10151 Gravois, on Saturday, May 28 at 3 pm  Interment will be held in private.
